Dreams Bugs šŸœ

With such a huge suite of creative tools, you may encounter occasional bugs in Dreams. Itā€™s really helpful for us to hear about them! If you discover an issue in Dreams, please check to see if anyone else has reported the issue before and if someone has, comment on it with your experiences. If not, post a new bug report here!

Hereā€™s some top tips to help us track down your bug as quickly as possible:

ā€¢ Give us a brief, clear summary of the bug. If necessary let us know what you think should be happening that isnā€™t.
ā€¢ Let us know the exact steps we need to follow to recreate your bug. For example -
ā€œLoad game > go to create mode > search for banana > stamp ā€œsuper cool bananaā€ > the banana didnā€™t load!"
ā€¢ If possible it really helps if you can include a screenshot or video of the problem.
ā€¢ Let us know the release version of the game ā€“ you can find this by having the Dreams icon highlighted on the Playstation homescreen, pressing ā€œoptionsā€ and then ā€œinformationā€. The bit we want is the Version number!

  1. How do I unlock the Ancient Temple Staircase

    I really like the premade Mm assets, they makes it really fast to make a good looking scene.

    I have unlocked everything in the Ancient Temple prizes except one thing, the Ancient Temple Staircase. How do I unlock this.

    I have completed the Ancient Temple Imp Quest and found every prize bubble in the Mm made level.

    Hello European_Gamer,

    I have moved this issue to bugs.

    As Catherine has stated this prize is awarded to the player in the second home space quest.
    Once collected it should be unlocked everywhere for player use.

    Would be be able to let us know if you had started dreams on one PS4 and then moved to another one before or after starting the homespace imp quest.

    Also do you remember if you were offline or if your went offline during the homespace editor imp quest.

    Could you let us know if you were on the Early Access or are you a new to dreams?

    Hope to hear from you soon.

  2. Wireless receiver powered by default (Fresh from toolbar and undesignated)

    An example of a wireless receiver acting out on me. When I put it on the microchip from the toolbar it was activated by default without input. Pulling it of the chip and on again solved that issue but when I checked the zone properties of the receiver I found it completly acting weird. The microchip in question was part of another mircochip on an asset that was cloned beforehand. Also due to my process of coding I have a high amount of wireless transmitters and receivers both on the chip and the scene in general. Upon further kinvestigation thisā€¦

  3. 2.07 comment timeout

    Currently there is no indication you cannot yet post a comment until you've finished writing it. This means you could spend a while wording the comment well, things like that, only to find you have wait 2 more minutes before actually posting it. Which means you have to cancel out and lose the comment you'd carefully prepared, or sit there for 2 minutes trying to post it now and then hoping you'll be able to move on with your life.

    Really not a friendly way to implement this for legitimate users. Presumably just an oversight, but one that's salt toā€¦

    Hi there TAPgiles!

    Thank you for reaching out about this issue. The 2 minute timer starts from when you press “post” on the first comment, and it is intended functionality that the warning message appears when posting. Thi measure was implemented to prevent spam.

    Many thanks,

  4. Crediting issue

    One of my creations on Dreams credits a user who probably shouldn't be there, I worked out why and I'm not sure if it's a bug or just an oversight or something.

    My creation uses an asset I saved from a separate creation of mine. That creation uses music from the other user, so that creation obviously has them credited. The problem is, the asset I saved from that creation is labelled as a remix of the creation with him still credited, even though I only used their music and the asset I made is completely different. So now, I'veā€¦

  5. Hovering over the group option resets number

    After selecting 1 single microchip, saving it as a new creation. I wanted to release it. But it says it contains PRIVATE creations.

  7. Painting grouped with Sculpt wonā€™t move

    If I select a Painting and a Moveable Sculpt and Group them, even with the Group itself set to Moveable, wonā€™t allow the Painting to move.
    If I grab the Painting, hover over the sculpt and press L1+X to scope in that creates a group which does allow the Painting to move with the Sculpture.

  8. Uploaded photo shows wrong game

    A user made a photo from my dream. The thumbnail is correct but when I open the photo it shows a different game but I can highlight the correct objects from my scene.

    On the indreams.me website it is correct.

  10. Receivers defaulting to "On (/receiving signal)" when placed on an existing puppet

    Hi MM! Congrats on the launch! Small bug here (I think) from an EA user here:

    I had an existing puppet in one of my scenes with a bunch of logic on it, including a number of wireless receivers. For some reason, in edit mode (or play mode), when I restart time, the receivers have "ON" signal regardless when time starts, even if the entire chip is off. This signal turns off (seemingly one frame after) time starts. I've double-checked it and this happens even when no matching transmitter exists in the level.

    For example, if I stamp a newā€¦

  11. Difficulty possessing watering can during intro

    It may be hard to see from the video, Iā€™m trying to possess the watering can and nothing happens. I think while possessing Connie, I bumped it too close to the edge of the scene. Pushing it off the side caused respawn and I was able to proceed

    Hello Pookachoo,

    Thanks for your post

    I can confirm that in order to possess the watering can that the imp tip will need to be above the body of the can. The imp will animate when its above something it can interact with.

    From your post is looks like the imp was not over the body of the watering can long enough for you to posses the watering can.

    Cheers

  12. Ancient Temple quest

    I've done part 3 of the quest where it needs to be put into a linked dream space about 3-5 times now and it just won't continue on. Also now I have 3-5 separate linked dreams of my ancient Temple uploaded now because of it. šŸ¤”

  13. Cant collaborate on scenes with a friend.

    So I have no idea if this is a bug or me just being dumb but it seems like a bug so imma put it here. Basically a friend and I are collaborating on a project, I'm trying to get him into dreams. I made a big open area with buildings and he made about 8 interiors to fill the space. So we go to publish it and it says there are private assets. Ok whatever that's it's own bug, since all the levels say already fully published and wont let us publish them further. But back on track. Iā€¦

  14. Text Displayer gadget sometimes displays sequences of numbers as '*******'.

    I entered (well, copied and pasted) a large body of text I had pre-written in notepad via the tool on indreams.me and every-time I tried to enter it Dreams would always convert the number sequence to stars '*****'.

    It's also quite laggy even with a sub 100 ping time on the ping test, with the cursor on the PS4 moving around inside the text entry box in a seemingly random, haphazard way.

    Steps to attempt to repro:


    1. Place a TD gadget onto a Microchip.

    2. Open TD Gadget.

    3. Copy and paste a large body of text from notepad into indreams.me usingā€¦

  15. Ungrouping sculpts with paints causes bolts to disappear

    Hi. Was making a cute backpack. Has bolts on it so some parts will wiggle around.

    Accidentally grouped it with a paint that I want to get rid of now. But when I ungroup the sculpts from the paint all the bolts disappear and need to be redone.

    Is this a bug?

    Quite a bit tedious to have to redo all the bolts. Don't have a previous save where the bolts are already on.

    Here is a short video where I showed what happened:

  16. Imp moving on its own a little

    Every once in a while my imp slowly moves on its own in one direction. Recentering the imp seems to fix it so it isnā€™t much of an issue, but it can be annoying when sculpting more precise builds. No idea why this happens.

  17. Mover bug with values and blend mode

    Two bugs here:


    1. Create a (normal) mover

    2. Create a value slider

    3. Set value slider to 2

    4. Wire the output of the slider in the input of the moverā€˜s speed.

    5. Normally the wire setting is overwrite.
      But here it is multiply (the one with X)
      Bug 1!

    6. Change blend mode to overwrite

    7. The value is divided by 10
      Bug 2!

    Best regards
    Sebastian

  18. Wiper's Wibble mode doesn't stay work with "transition via colour" off and wipe amount at < 100%

    This kind of technique would be great for underwater effects. But it seems to just not work always.

    If colour is on and amount is 100%, it works.
    If colour is off and amount is < 100%, it works.

    If colour is on and amount is < 100% (for a nice underwater look), it doesn't work.
    If colour is on and amount is 100%, it won't work in-place as a constant effect.

    Unsure if this is how it was designed or if it's a bug.

    If "transition via colour" is on, wipe amount can be less than 100% and itā€¦

  19. Saving private online takes 1min to appear for every scene

    My dream Mimeo Prophecy contains 24+ scenes. For each scene to save private online I had to wait at least 1 minute before I could save the scene private online. Every time.

    That's 24min+ of waiting. This wasn't the case last year but I noticed this behaviour in January for the first time. My scenes didn't get bigger.

  20. Can't publish a dream if I don't save every scene private online first

    I have 24+ scenes in my Dream which I updated yesterday.

    When I want to publish my dream and the scenes are only saved on my PS4 it takes forever to publish the dream and I had to abort the publish process. I had this problem when I first published my dream as well. At that time I waited several hours before aborting the publish process.

    Some scenes were actually being uploaded but not all. When I hit publish again it got published instantly. I think there is a problem with publishing big dreams with many scenes at once.
